October 1, 2017 Audiobook Reviews, Memes 11

BMR,OHMy (1)The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? Β If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.

Where did the month go!!!

So this next project in my photoshop class is really hard. I am no go at face swapping, though to be honest I think it would be easier if we didn’t have to try and make ours match black and white pics of dirty kids who worked in coal mines from the 1900’s. πŸ™‚ So I am trying not to stress on it much as I am learning new things I just haven’t found that one project yet that I think is cool. It’s still early. πŸ™‚

The weather this week was nice but next week it’s back into the mid 80’s though I don’t mind. I am fine with Sept. being a little warmer than normal. πŸ™‚ We could use a bit of rain though as much as I don’t want it as we are a bit dry.

Other than that not much going on over here. πŸ™‚

What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

  • Snow – is a thriller that sounded good when it came into my inbox. #thoseemailsgetmeeverytime πŸ™‚
  • Alone – I was drawn in by the words old, crumbling mansion! Β Sounds like a cool, creepy read, so fingers crossed! πŸ™‚

So that is it so not to bad. πŸ™‚

Books read last week

  • Devils Unto Dust – I think I read this one to close to Dread Nation (but trying to stay ahead of some 2018 releases) as they were both about zombies set in the mid to late 1800’s, both zombies had S names so I kept thinking of the other ones when trying to talk about them to friends and I wasn’t a huge fan of DN so found this one a bit slow and not real action packed as I would hope a zombie book would be, but did enjoy the last 25% and thought it ended pretty good.
  • Puppies in Paradise – I really like this series of short but very well done mysteries and who wouldn’t want to listen to a book with such cute puppies on it! πŸ™‚ Two more to go and I will be caught up!!! Working really hard at catching up on my cozy series and I have a ways to go! :)(

Currently reading

  • The Tercentennial Baron – This is a very busy book and I am about half through it and I will admit I am a bit confused at the moment but I hope to figure it all out soon. πŸ™ πŸ™‚ Might be one better read than listened too but the premise is interesting.
  • Tightening the Threads – Part of that working on catching up on series and after this one I have one left to go. I really like this series so can’t believe I got behind. πŸ™‚

What might be up next

Β Β ‘
  • A Deadly Eclair – First in a series and I promised to get this one read before the due date so got to get cracking on it. πŸ™‚
  • Rosemary’s Baby – Another classic horror I can’t wait to try, never seen the movie so this time maybe I will enjoy it more than I did The Exorcist. πŸ™‚ Buddy read for Barb and I for this month.
  • Play that Funky Music White Koi – Book two and the first one was so funny I just needed something light and fun to put in my reading so picked it. πŸ™‚

What I watched

So I watched the season premiere of NCIS and it was a bit intense but good and I also watched NCIS:NO which was good as well. Still need to get to Bull. Not a lot on I am really into watching this year and from what I have seen on the new shows coming out. I might be watching more netflix and acorn TV than regular TV.

I had forgotten all about watching TEN on lifetime but thank goodness for demand. It was a lot like the book from what I remember and I enjoyed it.

Got to entertain my 14 year old cousin Saturday so we had a bit of a horror movie marathon via netflix. I let him pick out a few so we watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (so gross), The Hallow (slow to start but overall okay), Curse of Chucky (never was a big Chucky fan), and then I made him watch Children of the Corn (Showed him a nice modern classic with atmosphere instead of gore and he liked it) πŸ™‚ I think I am caught up on horror watching for a few days….lol. Though didn’t get anything but this post accomplished on Saturday…lol.

How was your week? What did you get?

    Children of the Corn is a GREAT movie! I can’t wait for my kids to start requesting horror they have already sort of seen Halloween and Friday the 13th. At the age they are now I refuse to change the channel. If they don’t want to see it they can keep walking out of my safe space the kitchen! πŸ˜‰

    The weather is a mess, we are finally at my favorite this week but one day will be uncooperative but I’ll ignore that day and just focus on the rest of the days that are chilly! πŸ™‚

    Read Alone and lets chat!

    Have a great week, Stormi! Happy Reading! ox

    I’m not a horror or action (particularly war-based) movie person. All the Chuckies and Chainsaws for you. LOL I hope as you continue to pick up new tidbits and learn more skills, you’re face-swapping photos will come out alright. I also can’t believe September is over! Like, how? We’ve had some rain the last 3-4 days. It was actually nice, not too crazy.

    I guess we have 80’s yet through Tuesday and then it’s gonna cool off. Or, you know, whatever it decides to do. πŸ™‚

    Snow and Alone both look like good creepy fun. I totally missed TEN, now I gotta go stream it or something as I wanted to see that!

    Rosemary’s baby scared me when it came out. I think I saw the movie and then read the book. Pretty intense. And I’ve never been a Chucky fan either. He gives me the creeps. I agree Texas Chainsaw was gross. I saw it at the drive in. I spent the whole thing trying to sleep(it was the second movie of the night)but I heard the whole thing. Have a great reading week!
